Basic books on Chinese & Western philosophy

British scholar Bertrand Russell's A History of Western Philosophy 'has also been available in Chinese-language edition for a long time. Fung Yu Lan''s A Short History of Chinese Philosophy remains a pretty good reference book for people who are interested 'in comparative studies. Some very well-known universities in China such as Peking and Fudan offer courses' - of various levels - in Chinese and Western philosophy. Philosophy is often made an entry point 'for dialogues of civilizations.
